Alaska is the most sparsely populated state in the whole of the US. With striking scenery, fascinating wildlife and awe-inspiring sights at every turn, you'll be a world away from the busy bustle of Florida. Seeing Alaska by cruise is a unique experience, as you spend days at sea you'll be treated to stunning mountainous landscapes as far as the eye can see. Then when you venture on land, an abundance of outdoor adventures will be waiting for you.
Venture to this icy paradise for a true Alaskan adventure. This spectacular national park spans a whopping 3.3 million acres and is 27% covered in glaciers – 50 of which are named. The wildlife at Glacier Bay is a sight to behold; humpback whales, otters, porpoises and bears are just waiting to be found. Eagles soar, mountain goats roam and rare blacktail deer graze. This is a truly natural wonderland that shouldn't be missed. For the really adventurous, Glacier Bay is a perfect spot for watersports; kayaking, fishing, river rafting and small boat tours are all available.
Alaska's largest city is the place to head to discover the rich culture and heritage of the state. It's also one of the northernmost cities in the world. This big-city is the heart of Alaska and is home to a thriving music-scene, great theatre and delicious restaurants – heaving with fresh caught salmon of course! The beautiful paved roads make it the perfect place for a bike ride, or you can take a hike down the nearby mountains. In the winter, Flattop mountain is a must for skiing, snowmobiling or just building a snowman. Plus, you can shop till you drop in Anchorage without have to pay sales tax!
Nestled along Alaska's Inside Passage, Skagway is a town full of colorful history and quaint charm, making it a popular port of call on an Alaskan Cruise. The false-front shops and wooden sidewalks are true historic relics, and you'll find locals in period dress to help set the scene! Skagway is also a great base for adrenaline junkies. There are trails which will take you past lakes and waterfalls. Or you can venture on a bear hunt by taking a raft out to Bald Eagle Preserve or head to the Adventure Park where you can cross the treetop suspended bridge or whizz through the branches on a zipline
Hoonah is home to one of oldest Native communities in Alaska. The Huna tribe have lived in the area for thousands of years and have since transformed it to include a private cruise port call Icey Strait. Head to Hoonah for a taste of old school Alaska. Here the simple life reigns supreme, with an abundance of arts and craft shops, native dance performances, peaceful places to fish and opportunities to see bears and whales. For a truly relaxing time, journey a little way out of town to bathe in the Tenakee natural hot springs.
Anchorage is the best place to learn about Alaska's diverse culture and colorful history. Head to the Alaska Native Heritage Centre to learn all about the traditions and lifestyles of the indigenous Alaskan people. The Anchorage Museum houses Alaska's full history – including art and science all in one building. This place is also great for children, with its planetarium and daily activities.
Welcome to the home of the whales. These beautiful humpback creatures adorn the icy waters like mythical beasts. No trip to Alaska would be complete without hiring a boat, getting up close with the glaciers and seeing if you can spot a few. Along the way you should also see otters, puffins, sea lions and more.
For a true sight to behold, hop on board Alaska's only aerial tramway. The cars scale 18000 feet from the cruise dock in Juneau up to the Mountain house. The view is indescribable, the experience is unmissable. Once you get to the top, there's a restaurant, nature center, and beautiful hiking trails to keep you entertained before you descend.
Whether you're heading to Alaska in the summer or winter, don't miss the opportunity to catch the northern lights. Located directly under the auroral oval, Alaska is one of the best places in the world to experience nature's most epic light show. Organise a tour with a professional company on land, or head to the top deck of your cruise ship and you might get lucky!
